obama campaign team has been gaming the re-election battle against mitt romney. we'll try to spot some of the inexplicable reasons later in the show. all the polls show republican voters favor newt gingrich to lead them into battle. one poll broadened it, looking forward to the november election. it found gingrich running very close to romney in a head-to-head with the president. in ohio a must-win state for republicans, this is striking. obama now trails romney, but obama also trails gingrich, 42-43. very close between myth and newt in those hypothetical general election battles. in florida, not quite that close. obama trails romney by three, but he beats gingrich by just two points. in pennsylvania, better for obama. he beats romney there by three and beats gingrich by eight. kelly, these two guys, newt and mitt, look about the same. >> it is striking. the lying in wait period for mitt romney, where he's done all the right things in the traditional model has not paid off for him. his support has been so constant. i'm from ohio, so i have a sense of this from my own personal history.

republicans remain dissatisfied, many believe, with republican contenders. notably, romney and gingrich. republican voters see gingrich as zany, and romney as inconsistent. the iowa caucuses, less than three weeks away, january 3, are closed caucuses, limited only to registered republicans, ie, g.o.p.'s, true believers. that gives dr. paul the inside track. also, this -- one, ground support. politicians in the state say that paul has the best ground campaign. that means he will turn out his vote, reminds a phone calls, car pickups and returns, helping registration, et cetera. two, money. paul this year has raised $15 million, only mitt romney with 15 million and rick perry with 17 million have raised more. marginally. three, advertising. tough, close to the bone claims. here's his ad against newt gingrich, branding him with serial hypocrisy. >> he flipped and flopped based on -- >> he's demonstrating himself to be a very -- insider. >> it's about serial hypocrisy. >> and as for governor romney, here's the paul take on him. >> mitt romney, who was praised by barack obama for his

with mitt romney and the fact that he has his knives out as it were for president obama. there's been a lot of talk that mitt is feeling better, if not confident, about an iowa -- his iowa standings. can you give us more intel on that? >> well, i think, alex, they did their closing argument last week in new hampshire and it was sort of striking he did a closing argument in a republican nomination contest where he focused exclusively on president obama. didn't talk about other republicans. and i think that reflects an extraordinarily high degree of confidence in the romney campaign. i quoted a senior adviser in a column i wrote last week as saying he could not see a scenario in which mitt romney was not the nominee. that is partly because they believe the field is so weak. it's also partly because they think romney is rising, that he's rekofcovered from the gingh surge. even if he doesn't win iowa, they only see one other possible winner here and that's ron paul, who they don't think has any chance of being the republican nominee. it could actually be a win for him either way. but
